Format: Audio CD
Playing Time - 36:07 -- James Alan Shelton knows how to make a listener very happy with his full guitar sound and clean picking on a number of catchy melodies like his own self-penned opener, "Half Moon Bay," and a handful of traditional favorites like "Goodbye Liza Jane," "Darlin' Nellie Gray," "Little Bennie," "Road to Columbus" and "Texas Gales." Shelton also plays some banjo on a favorite Webb Pierce number, "Tupelo County Jail." We even hear Shelton pick the eight strings of the mandolin on "Married Life Blues" and "Eight More Miles to Louisville." This all adds up to a great showcase of Shelton's multi-instrumental talent, accompanied by Dr. Ralph Stanley, Ralph Stanley II, Steve Sparkman, Adam Steffey, Tim Stafford, Barry Bales, Hunter Berry, Shawn Lane, Dan Moneyhun, Todd Meade, John Rigsby, Keith Williams, and Bill Dunham.

From Virginia, James is the lead guitar player for Ralph Stanley's Clinch Mountain Boys. Learning to pick out melodies on guitar from listening to his maternal grandfather's harmonica, James also caught a good share of bluegrass on television. His early bluegrass bands included the Bluegrass Travelers, the Larkin Brothers, Flint Hill, and Blue Ridge. In 1992, James first appeared for a short time with Ralph Stanley when Junior Blankenship took a few weeks off. In early 1994, James when to work for Ralph on a fulltime basis. Six solo album projects have documented his music during the last decade. One, in collaboration with crosspicking legend George Shuffler, was nominated by IBMA for the 2000 Recorded Event of the Year Award. Shelton now picks a 1946 Martin or Signature Huss and Dalton dreadnought guitar.
It's especially nice to hear an album that doesn't try to push the tempos too far to extreme.
